Physics

How many order of magnitude are there in one million?


ANSWER

6


SOLUTION
For the number 1,000,000, we will shift the decimal to the left, stopping just before the first digit of the number. The number of moves you make to the left is the order of magnitude. Since we moved it six times, there are six orders of magnitude of 1,000,000, meaning that you can multiply 10 six times and get 1,000,000
